While this umbrella fabric is lighter in weight than our former "Sunbrella" brand, it does the trick. We love having wireless lighting overhead as we enjoy outdoor entertaining in the evening. The flip of the switch makes magic happen. There is sufficient soft lighting to see what we are eating while the glow makes for an inviting ambiance. We live in an area that can be subject to high winds, so suggest the addition of a wraparound tie. We have no problems without the tie, but it would be a welcome addition. This is a highly recommend product . . . and we have!
Pros:Produces a lovely glow over our evening outdoor patio table.
Works great with no fuss.
Neutral color (beige/tan) blends with our outdoors.
